Seeking lease-to-own or other opportunity for acreage within hour of Portland


?

Land Seeker Description

I am looking to grow fruit and vegetables and hopefully caretake surrounding forest land. I have many skills but would love to learn from and help an experienced farmer transition into retirement, by carrying on their projects as requested and starting my own. Eventual ownership of the land preferred but not required.


What features of the property are essential?

Prefer land with wild/forested acreage also available. A creek would be ideal. Prefer existing electricity and water. Also prefer land with no recent conventional chemical applications. Existing structures would be helpful.


Describe your farming experience

I am a long-time gardener. My farming experience is minimal, helping friends with farms through the years.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

I would like to get a small orchard established as well as various vegetable crops. I would grow some medicinal herbs and wild craft others on the land for my herbal products business. If space, I would like to grow a small amount of grain. If taking over an active farm, I would like to continue whatever is passed on to me.


What are your long term goals

Long term goals would be to expand all short term goals, plus build a structure for living. I would like to create space for educational and wellness workshops or retreats if the setting is appropriate.


Describe your housing needs

Housing not immediately required but desired later.
